Blackstock Country Estate is a beautiful countryside wedding and events venue set in the rolling South Downs of Sussex. We host ceremonies, receptions and events in two cosy barns, surrounded by 70 acres of breathtaking estate. Rustic and rural, yet refined and romantic, we are surrounded by open meadows, bluebell woodland and peaceful lakes. Wild deer can be spotted on the grounds, among other wildlife roaming freely.

Notes

East Sussex Credit Union (ESCU) has confirmed plans to provide a free budgeting and money management advice service to the hard-pressed residents of Wealden. Sponsored by Wealden District Council, ESCU will be providing a programme of simple, down-to-earth, local financial workshops across the district beginning in July. The new ESCU workshops are designed specifically to help educate people to manage their finances better and where required to promote access to an ethical lender, able to provide cost effective credit and savings solutions. This avoids the need for residents to approach payday loan companies or doorstep lenders who can charge extortionate rates of interest and impose very restrictive terms and conditions.

Photo of Law Commission Consultation on Outdated Law of Wills

Notes

The outdated law of wills needs an overhaul according to the Law Commission.

Age UK has been asked by The Law Commission to share this public consultation published on 13th July 2017. It remains open for feedback until 10th November 2017.

The Law Commission says that laws are failing to protect the vulnerable – and not allowing others to distribute their cherished possessions after they’ve gone.

The independent legal body estimates that 40% of people who die every year haven’t made a will and as a result wants to make sure that the law around wills is working for everyone.
